Uses For An Old Hamper

I have an old hamper that I'm not using anymore and can't figure out what to do with it now. It's just a regular sized hamper that's green. Any ideas would be great. Thank you!

Repository for those plastic store bags is what I use mine for.

Use it to store extra blankets, out of season clothes or old purses.

You could use it as an emergency kit. Pack a blanket, flashlight, bottled water, radio, extra batteries, rain poncho, sneakers, beef jerky, etc. Everything would be together, easy to find if you ever needed it.

You could use it to hide your Christmas presents!

If you have young children, it could be a toy box. Or, put in some fabric softner sheets to use as a sachet, and store extra blankets, pillows etc.

I moved ours to the enclosed porch which is used mainly for storage. It now neatly holds the brown paper bags from the grocery store that I recycle for trash disposal.

i use one to store rolls of holiday gift wrap. or you could also use one to store extra clean folded towels, linens,etc. in a guest room, or even out of season clothes, like heavy coats in the summertime. an outside toy bin is a great idea if you have kids. if it has a flat top, put a small table cloth on it and use it as an end table or night stand. if it is solid and not lattice-type material, you can use it to store bags of pet food. if it is lattice, you can use it as a recycling bin.

We use one of our old white hampers with the top edge cracked for the recycling of plastics and cardboard.

if you have a garden, you can use it to store your gardening tools.

If not, use it to store your children's winter clothes.

Put it in your closet and hide x-mas presents away from the kiddos, just put a few sheets on top and they will think it's full of sheets.

We use ours to hold shredded newspapers for our guinea pigs, it's easy to carry, holds the shredder perfectly and doesn't look bad in the room either.
